Max’s First Word by Rosemary Wells, Max series

Max’s First Word by Rosemary Wells is part of the Max series.  The particular book we have is a board book perfect for toddlers.  Ours is well worn from being “read” by both our toddlers for years.

What I disliked:

I am not a big fan of the Max series.  I think there’s a correlating cartoon or something too on tv, but it’s so slow that I was glad my kids liked “reading” it to themselves.

What I liked:

When my kids were preschoolers and asked me to read it to them, I reminded them about how hard I tried to get them to say “mama” first, but my daughter’s first word was “shoe” and my son’s was “dada.”  I made a joke about how hard it was to teach them to talk, just like the characters in this book, so they giggled throughout the entire book every time.  I accidentally made it one of their favorites because at that age of repetition they loved hearing the same story multiple times.

Where to find it:

We were blessed by Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library with this book; however, given how much use it received in our house, I would easily pay $5-8 for this book.  You can find it from Amazon sellers here.
